This Reader brings together a wide range of material to present an international perspective on topical issues in science education today. In order to identify what themes should be addressed in the book, thirty-eight science educators from around the world responded to the question: 'What issues are currently important in science education in your country?' The outcome is this lively and authoritative Reader, which features topics as varied as:

  • globalisation

  • assessment

  • pupil's views on science education

  • environmental education

  • teaching approaches

  • teacher development

  • multimedia and ICT

  • constructivism.

With a specially written introduction from the editor, providing a much-needed context to the current education climate, students of science education will find this Reader an important route map to further reading and understanding.
